Resting and Abiding In The King’s Love

Resting and Abiding In The King’s Love

The Lord loves you with an everlasting love. His devotion to you is fervent and unwavering, beautifully steadfast forever. Daily, He yearns for you to come and dwell peacefully in His arms, basking in His warm and gentle embrace. That you may abide in serenity through His joyous affection. There are many times when we can become so busy, afraid and truly overwhelmed with life. Fear has a way of causing our souls to spiral into chaos and restlessness, but even in your moments of difficulty, you are invited to rest and remain abiding in the King’s love.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30

When your beautiful heart feels as though you cannot go on much longer, abiding in the King’s love becomes our safe haven, our refuge, and hiding place. His heart desires to take care of us, and erase every trace of anxiety away through His loving faithfulness and sovereignty. As His precious child, He comprehends every detail that concerns you. He understands your hopes and dreams, your fears and worries. And as your Father, He only wants what is best for you.

There was a time during my relationship with God, where I experienced so much suffering. And I found it hard to believe at the time that God wanted the best for me. Because I felt as though I was going through so much heartache, so much torment and torture. My heart went through a lot of trauma, and the question was constantly within my mind, ‘Does my Father truly want what is best for me? Why isn’t He helping me when I need Him most?’

But my spirit was constantly reminded of James 1:2-4 –‘ Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.’

Though my suffering was certainly uncomfortable, it did help my heart recognise my need for God even more. As much as many of us despise such challenging trials and tribulations, suffering draws us closer to the heart of the Father. And in that suffering, He has His great, heavenly arms wide open to receive us. To become our comforter, and our strength. And though God does not always remove the suffering straight away, I believe He has a greater purpose behind it all. For He is a Father that has a benevolent heart, longing and desiring to do what is right. Through which, I have learned to remain abiding in the King’s love. Despite circumstances, and despite how I am feeling. Whether in anger, in happiness. In pain or in joy. The Lord is forever our rock, and our dwelling place. Our safety and belonging resides solely in Him.

He quietens our soul’s with His love, ushering peace and bliss to every area of our hearts.

When you’re dismayed and sorrowful, your Heavenly Father is always with you. Willing to bring you help, comfort and rest. He wants you to be still, and find heavenly peace by remaining abiding in His love, remembering His Word and holding on to His promises. Keeping our eyes so passionately fixed on Him. For whether the storms come or go, He will always, be with you.

    Hi Devona. I appreciate your positive outlook. However, for many of us this may be more of an uphill battle than for others. Believe me when I tell you that I thank God each day for my easily recognizable blessings. Chuck Full. However, I have also become a Realist who makes No beans about the “MANY SICK” things happening in our world and culture, as well as the may heartaching, scary things in our personal lives. In the very beginning, He told us Not to do what we did, but we did it anyway. Now we have to pay, if Not eternally, Thank God, at least for now, and it can be extremely painful and disorienting. I thank God for my life and blessings, but also I look forward to Revelation 21.
    All of the tears wiped away…no more Death..Sorrow..Crying..or Pain, because the former things will be done away FOREVER!! JKM.
